    Ambition Regeneration Plans

    Ambitious regeneration projects are sweeping across the UK. As of 2022, 20 towns and city centres transformed through regeneration projects. Innovative projects can remove barriers to economic growth, helping strengthen communities. Investors looking for their next property investment should consider purchasing property in regeneration zones. These zones are a positive indicator of a profitable investment, as urban regeneration is key to capital growth. Capital growth is your property increasing in value over time. 

    Consider a rundown place, then inject it with millions of pounds of innovation. It will automatically become a much more desirable place because of enhanced amenities and upgraded spaces. Properties within 750m of a regeneration zone were 3.6% higher in value per annum than the local authority average. Towns and cities currently undergoing regeneration can spark economic growth, moving towards higher employment and expanding business prospects. 

    Positive economic growth attracts more businesses to the area. Therefore, creating more jobs. The increasing number of jobs available results in rising levels of tenant demand as commuters hunt for accommodation. Areas with high levels of tenant demand are more likely to achieve higher rental yields.

    Enhanced Connectivity 

    Regeneration has several benefits for cities and towns. Improving transport is essential to successful regeneration, providing people and businesses with increased connectivity. Transport links deliver easier access to workplaces and decrease environmental damage by reducing commuting times and providing alternatives to car transport. Improvements to transport infrastructure make for an attractive place to live and work, but unlock new opportunities for property development sites. For example, Sheffield city centre will connect directly to HS2, allowing commuters to reach London in 40 minutes. With further access to Manchester in just 30 minutes.

    Infrastructure is being improved across the UK. Discover the projects:

    Noma: Reshaping Manchester 

    Manchester is the new London, but without the London prices. In London, prices have inflated to £715,201. However, investors can purchase a property in Manchester for £249,576 on average. In 2021, Manchester was voted the third-best city in the world. London’s continuous expansion and high rental yields made the capital the preferred location, but not anymore. Investors have had their heads turned by the Northern city. Over the last couple of years, more people have chosen to live outside of London and commute in. Manchester has always held a strong demand for rental properties in the city centre, with the creation of modern and stylish apartments. In a report by Savills, it is predicted prices in the Northwest will increase by 28.8% over the next five years. Whilst Manchester continues to flourish, this is the perfect place to invest, because you can secure a property at a more affordable price.
